Season 1998–99 was a successful season for Hibs, as the club bounced back from the relegation suffered in 1998, gaining promotion at the first attempt with a record points total.[2] There was disappointment in the cup competitions, however, as the club were beaten by Stirling Albion in the Scottish Cup, and were hammered 4–0 by St Johnstone in the League Cup. As a First Division club, Hibs would have entered the Scottish Challenge Cup, but the competition was not played during the 1998–99 season due to a lack of sponsorship.[3]
